Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the info in massive hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are visiting a site at the same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Hosting

If you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can get it with only several mouse clicks. In case you would like to use it for different websites, you can order more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a random port number that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will allow you to restart and to stop any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans offered by our company and you can activate it without experiencing any problem, even if you have not worked with it beforehand, since Hepsia offers a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven web apps as you wish, so you can get the most out of your websites by combining the power of our servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You’ll need to enter the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will generate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no additional cost if you obtain any of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a simple-to-navigate interface, which will permit you to start/terminate/restart any instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you’ll have to do to activate it is insert the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be set automatically too and you will see the upsides of running Node.js instantaneously. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
